Brief HistoryIn 2007 our founders Grace and Carlos Medina decided to begin handing out bags of food from their garage to families around their community. As Pastors of their church they began handing out the food to the members of their congregation, as word began to spread they then had 80 families coming to their home every Wednesday.
In 2012 they moved their operation to Bloomington CA where everything exploded. Now Vida Life has grown to feeding 38,000 families a month through 150 extensions all over California and Mexico.
Grace Medina (Founder): God gave me a promise that one day He would expand my territory and today I can see that He is fulfilling His promise as Vida Life expands into more and more cities in the U.S.
